A quick question

I have been in the I.T. industry for about 15 years working in various capacities from Desktop Support to Network Administrator.  All of my experience is on the infrastructure side and I would like to move into Oracle Database Security.  Having said that, I have zero experience with databases.


What would you guys recommend as a starting path?


I looked up the study guide for 1z0-061: Oracle Database 12c: SQL Fundamentals, but it appears that book is for someone who has worked in the field for a little while.


Any ideas?



Thanks for your time.

    moving to be an "oracle database security" requires first extensive experience in Oracle Database Management (my opinion).


    if you don't have any experience in SQL (structured query language) then you need start learning it since its the "language of the database".


    So, you need to learn SQL, Entity Relation Architecture, Oracle Admin I course in 12c is also good (since there is a shift in oracle database architecture).


    Good Luck.
